Dealing with dartitis as a pub player

Two years ago, I wrote an article about how dartitis can be turned into a short-term problem. I had come through the initial stages of not being able to release a dart and was comfortable with realigning my throw in order to take the next step. The good news is that since my previous article, I have not encountered any problem with letting the dart go out of my hand. That’s half the battle won, right? However, I am producing more variations than an Indian spin bowler with the dart either coming out of the front of my hand or the left-hand side, or my elbow dropping so low that it’s halfway towards the oche.

Despite such issues, I’ve continued to compete in pub leagues, Super League and tournaments, although it’s fair to say that any positive performance comes as a surprise. Anyone who has had to cope with dartitis will acknowledge that it’s nigh-on impossible to not expect your throwing action to break down at any moment, but when the good moments come, they are heightened with sheer relief. First and foremost, you are proving a point to yourself and showing that you are not completely incapable, but there’s also a desire to remind team members or opponents that you can still play, proving that your own persistence is not a waste of everyone’s time.

Over Christmas and into the New Year, I’ve played a lot of competitive darts and for the most part, I’ve been pleased with how I have thrown. In the Super League knockout tournament, I averaged nearly 60 and almost hit a 21-dart leg which included a seven and a 26. Try it – it takes some doing! I also kicked off the 301 league with a 12-dart leg – my third best competitive leg pre and post-dartitis. Nothing completely spectacular but for a dartitis sufferer, it rarely gets better. That’s just the reality of what you’re dealing with, but that’s ok. It’s the reward for your own perseverance.

PDC UK Open

Then came the acid test – back to Super League darts. Playing Super League is never going to be the be all and end all to me but for anyone with dartitis, there is a certain fear factor. You play the game not expecting to win, but praying to avoid embarrassment. Call that a negative attitude if you will but it’s an involuntary mentality which is part of the package. I got paired against a player who I knew I should be beating but already, the natural reaction is ‘What if I don’t?’

I won the match 3-2 but it doesn’t come close to telling the whole story. Neither does the 13.33 per dart average that I recorded. It’s an abysmal average for that platform of darts but I took every single positive and ignored the negatives. I lost the opening leg and hit a 76 checkout under pressure for a 26-dart leg in the second. I won two legs where my opponent had hit a 140 and finished 40 at the first time of asking in the decider. There may have been a 60-dart leg in there – which I lost after going from 35 to leaving nine in three darts, which is quite the skill – but who cares? I won my first ever match at Super League and it broke a mental barrier at the same time.

Ahead of the next game, my shoulder and release were as relaxed as they had been in some time. The fear factor remained, but there was optimism. However, that next game didn’t come, and it didn’t the following week either. The win had been ignored and only the average had been remembered. What was my own significant achievement was effectively deemed worthless by others. That should not be misconstrued to be a personal criticism, but it further highlighted the minefield which comes with dartitis, especially for a pub-standard player who still wants to play and contribute.

From my own personal standpoint, I’m forced into adopting a one-step-forward, two-steps-back mentality. I’m past the stage – the hardest stage – of being demoralised before I even try to throw a dart. I know my best game is in there somewhere and I know that I am capable of producing it. It’s taken patience to get to that stage, and I’m proud of myself for getting to that stage. However, proving things to yourself is only part of the challenge and there will always be concerns – demons to use a more extreme term – about how others perceive you and what they expect of you, especially in a team situation. The days of me being relied upon or expected to win a leg or a match by others feels long gone and it’s a new mindset to have to cope with.

That could be described as an unnecessary over-analysis of a situation that may or may not exist but again, it’s an involuntary reaction which comes with the territory. There’s no longer the possibility of being able to throw at a board – even in the least competitive of environments – and not being aware of how your throw is going, how it’s feeling, doubting whether everything is in sync and who is judging you, if anyone is judging you at all. There’s an over-eagerness to want to perform to the best of your ability and that has to be reduced down to a manageable level.

That’s a transition that Berry van Peer has probably had to make in recent months. Obviously his experience of dartitis was broadcast to millions on a television screen and it should never be underestimated what he achieved in defeating Cameron Menzies in a deciding leg at the Grand Slam of Darts. Berry didn’t get his PDC Tour Card for 2018 but I have absolutely no doubt that it’s a blessing in disguise. It gives him 12 months out of the spotlight and a chance to work on overcoming dartitis in the most effective way he can find without having to put his throw under more scrutiny on the Pro Tour. He can now improve at his own pace. It will work wonders.

What Berry did at the Grand Slam was an inspiration to me, as it would have been to anyone who has struggled with their throw. It put dartitis in the public eye and it helped take away some of the perception that dartitis is down to nerves. It’s not. If anything, it’s building your expectations too high and trying to rush your own progression. Subconsciously, Berry probably got ahead of himself after reaching the PDC World Youth final in 2016 and when the results didn’t come in 2017, he hit a brick wall. I did the same when averaging 67 in the last 32 of the old UK Open pub qualifiers. I was five matches away from the Reebok Stadium, expecting to progress over the next 12 months and it all went downhill from there.

That said, I still know that if everything clicks for me in one given match or competition, I’m still capable of beating most people. I understand that probably won’t happen over a prolonged period of time but I continue to enjoy playing darts with dartitis because I know that one moment is going to come. When I play the UK Open qualifiers in the coming weeks, will I be competitive? Probably not, but I’m prepared to put myself through the process of overcoming mental obstacles in order to get back to where I want to be.

The early stages of dartitis are probably best spent behind closed doors with no pressure and no expectations. There needs to be a certain acceptance that you’re effectively starting from scratch and those previous high averages are not realistic. However, just enjoy the process and do things at your own pace. That first competitive game back probably won’t go to plan but it’s a continuation of the process. Think where Berry van Peer would be if he had accepted the PDC’s offer of pulling out of the Grand Slam before the Menzies match? Instead of fading into the background, he backed himself and produced one of the most memorable darting moments of 2017. If a 21-year-old can do that in front of a thousand people at the Wolverhampton Civic and millions around the world, there’s every chance that it’s possible to get back on track in front of a few people in a pub.

JAMIE CAVEN fired home a nine-darter as the first two European Tour Qualifiers concluded at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan.

With 20 places up for grabs at both the Dutch Darts Masters in Venray, The Netherlands and the German Darts Masters in Munich, Germany, there was double success for five players, as Stephen Bunting, Daryl Gurney, Kevin Painter, Devon Petersen and James Richardson qualified for both events.

But it was Caven’s nine-dart performance that stole the show as he swept aside Mark Barilli in style, having previously beaten Jay Foreman 6-3.

It wasn’t the most conventional of nine-darters however. Having taken out 171 with his first three darts, he then landed a maximum to leave himself 150 to finish, which he took out with treble-20, bull, double-tops to complete the perfect leg.

“The nine darter was nice,” said Caven. “The other time I hit one on the tour was against Simon Whitlock in Crawley, and that was 167, 180, treble 20, treble 20, double 17 – I just can’t do it conventionally it seems.”

It was a superb start for the 39-year-old, and despite crashing out to Robert Owen in the second qualifier, Caven is pleased with the way he is playing and has his sights set on the top 16.

“I think I have been floating around 17-25 in the rankings for the last few years and I want to change that. I feel good, things are going okay – you don’t hit a nine-darter if you aren’t playing well. I am looking forward to putting a lot of hard work in and getting myself right for the big stuff coming up later in the year.”

Elsewhere, Wigan was a happy hunting ground for Richardson, having secured his Tour Card earlier in the week before picking up two major scalps on his way qualification for the opening two European Tour events.

In qualification for the Dutch Darts Masters, he backed up a first round whitewash to then beat World Number 24 Steve Beaton 6-3 in the second round, and Nathan Derry 6-5 in the final.

And in the second qualifier, he marched past Jim Walker and Steve Brown, before beating former World Championship finalist Andy Hamilton 6-3 to conclude a superb few days.

The father to JDC World Youth champion Joshua Richardson, James has put his recent resurgence down to the influence of his son.

“I am over the moon, I had absolutely no nerves, but the biggest part of me coming back is my son,” he said.

“He won the JDC Youth Championship, and we are now practicing together. Me and Josh are on the board all the time, and he is my inspiration, so I owe him this success.

“My confidence is sky high. On the second day here I played really well and got my Tour Card, and then it came to the qualifiers and I have done the double. I’ve never had a start to the season like this before. I feel good and think I can go far this year.”

It was also a good day for Ryan Harrington, son of former World Number One Rod Harrington, as he reached his first ever European Tour event with victory in the first qualifier.

The full list of qualifiers for the Dutch Darts Masters in Venray, between February 12-14 is as follows: Mervyn King, Simon Whitlock, Stephen Bunting, Ronnie Baxter, Gerwyn Price, Jamie Lewis, Kevin Thomas, John Henderson, Daryl Gurney, Mark Webster, James Richardson, Jamie Caven, Paul Milford, Ricky Evans, David Pallett, Ritchie Edhouse, Robbie Green, Kevin Painter, Devon Petersen and Ryan Harrington.

The full list of qualifiers for the German Darts Masters in Munich, between March 26-28 is as follows: Mark Barilli, Mark Walsh, Stephen Bunting, Alan Norris, Chris Dobey, Ben Davies, James Richardson, John Bowles, Daryl Gurney, Nathan Aspinall, Steve Beaton, Darren Johnson, Stuart Kellett, Andrew Gilding, Peter Hudson, Joe Cullen, William O’Connor, Kevin Painter, Devon Petersen and James Wilson.

2016 PDC Qualifying School Day Four

2016 PDC Qualifying School Day Four

ROSS SMITH completed an impressive week by securing his Tour Card on the final day of the 2016 PDC Qualifying School at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan, as Ryan Palmer and Dutch duo Yordi Meeuwisse and Vincent Kamphuis also joined the elite 128 Tour Card holders.

Following four days of play in Qualifying School, which attracted 400 entries from players worldwide, 16 players won automatic Tour Cards to secure a coveted spot on the PDC ProTour.

A further 14 Tour Cards were also awarded to those top of the PDC Qualifying School Order Of Merit, with ranking points having been awarded based on finishing positions across the four days.

The meant that Mark Walsh, John Michael, Dick van Dijk, Harry Robinson, Mark Barilli, Matt Clark, Terry Temple, Darron Brown, Dennis Smith, Mick McGowan, Simon Preston, Matthew Dennant, Robert Owen and Ron Meulenkamp also booked their place on the PDC circuit for 2016-2017 with Tour Cards.

The fourth day, though did see Kent-born Smith, who hit a nine-darter in Wednesday’s Day One, secure an automatic Tour Card as he overcame Ashley Hykin in his opening match, before beating John Power, Robert Marijanovic and Zoran Lerchbacher to reach the last 32.

Then came a run of incredibly close victories, as he edged out Adam Huckvale, Marko Kantele and Mick McGowan all by a 5-4 scoreline to secure his full-time place on the PDC ProTour.

The 27-year-old already has four years of experience on the PDC circuit, but is looking to break into the sport’s elite during 2016.

“I am absolutely over the moon,” said Smith. “Playing in the elite of darts is what it’s all about, so I am delighted.

“The money that is on offer now is fantastic and I just want to do what I know I can. I have had a bit of a tough year, so I am looking forward to this year now and hopefully I can play as well as I know I can.

“I know I have beaten and can beat a lot of the top boys – it’s just the consistency part I am looking to get right.”

Elsewhere, the Dutch talent pool grew ever larger with Meeuwisse and Kamphuis cementing their Tour Cards alongside Day Three qualifier Jeffrey de Graaf.

Gifted a bye in the first round, Meeuwisse then whitewashed Mark Breakspear in his second round game before beating Richie Howson, Adam Hunt, Mick Todd and Scott Dale to set up a shoot-out with compatriot Ron Meulenkamp, which he won 5-2.

Kamphuis, who agonisingly lost in the last eight on Day Three, was also the beneficiary of a first round bye, before beating Scott Taylor, Stuart Stubbs, James Young, Jamie Kelling, Joey Ten Berge and Mark Walsh to secure his place in the elite 128 Tour Card holders.

Having narrowly missed out on previous days, Kamphuis expressed his delight at now being able to face the likes of his compatriots Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld on the big stage.

“It feels absolutely incredible,” he said. “Today I started on 12 points and was just thinking that one or two points might just be good enough, but to get so far in the tournament you then just want to win your Tour Card outright.

“This has done loads for my confidence, and I can throw now with the big guys so we can see what happens next year.

“Since Raymond van Barneveld won in 1995, darts has become huge [in the Netherlands]. I started around that time and twenty years later I have my first Tour Card, so it’s unbelievable.”

He joked: “Barney is an incredible player, much better than me, so following in his footsteps would be very hard – but darts is darts, you can win anything if you want it.”

After also receiving a first round bye, Palmer secured his first ever Tour Card as he narrowly squeezed past Sam Head 5-4 in the second round, before beating Jason Tarry, Nigel Daniels. Per Laursen, Jerry Hendriks and Matt Clark.

With an additional 14 Tour Cards on offer to take the total number of ProTour professionals to 128, former UK Open finalist Mark Walsh, veteran stars Dennis Smith and Matt Clark and resurgent Irish ace Mick McGowan secured Tour Cards.

Greece’s John Michael will also now compete full-time on the PDC circuit this year – after qualifying for the last two World Championships – while Dick van Dijk and Ron Meulenkamp add another two Dutch rivals to world number one Michael van Gerwen.

Players who competed at the 2016 PDC Qualifying School but did not win Tour Cards will now be eligible to compete on the PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour, which will feature 16 tournaments each worth £10,000 in prize money and are held across four double-header weekends.

These players will also be eligible to top up the field for Players Championship events to 128 players should all of the Tour Card Holders not enter, with places allocated in order of ranking position on the Q School Order of Merit.

Qualifying School Ranking Points will be awarded as follows:
Last 128 defeat: One point
Last 64 defeat: Two point
Last 32 defeat: Three points
Last 16 defeat: Five points
Last eight defeat: Nine points

2016 PDC Qualifying School Day Three

JEFFREY DE GRAAF became the latest Dutch star to join the PDC circuit as he secured his tour card alongside Brian Woods, Tony Newell and Ray Campbell on day three of Qualifying School at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan.
The 25-year old, who was seeded third going in to the recent Lakeside World Championship, will now be looking to emulate the success of compatriots Benito van de Pas and Jeffrey de Zwaan – former Q School winners – as he joins the elite 128 tour card holders.

After coming through 5-0 in his opening match against Peter Evison, he narrowly edged past Simon Burt before beating Lee Shewan, Jamie Bain, Scott Dale and Mark Walsh to set up a last eight clash with Simon Preston, which he comfortably won 5-1.

Following his victory, the Dutchman admitted it was a lot tougher than expected.

“It is such a relief as there was a lot of pressure on me to get a tour card in the first place,” he said.

“I thought I would make it easier than I did. After two days I was playing well but it wasn’t working out for me, and to have just one point – I was really disappointed in myself.

“I played well, so I am very happy with this [victory] but it was certainly harder than I thought.”

Having secured his place on the PDC circuit, de Graaf now has his sights firmly set on the World Championship stage, and wants to lock horns with the current World Champion.

“I want to face them all – I want to test my own skills against the best,” he said when quizzed about meeting the world’s top players.

“A couple of years ago I played Gary Anderson at an exhibition, so I am looking forward to meeting him again.”

“My dream is to get to Alexandra Palace – it’s the World Championship and I always want to play in it. That’s the main goal for this year, but I hope I can do a lot more, grow a lot, play a lot of events and qualify for everything.

Elsewhere, it was a successful day for Tony Newell and Brian Woods, as they both regained their tour cards at the first time of asking.

Newell whitewashed Matthew Hayes in his opener before beating Jeffrey van de Ven, Chris McTernan, Les Marson, Matt Golding, Trevor Burkhill and John Michael to secure his final four berth.

Meanwhile, Woods was awarded a first round bye before beating Danny Dyer, Aden Kirk, Steven Hine, Joey Ten Berge, Nigel Daniels and Harry Robinson to secure his place amongst the 128 tour card holders.

It’s an incredible change in fortunes for the former Lakeside semi-finalist, who admitted he was considering taking a break from the sport just weeks ago.

“It’s a really good feeling. I was actually thinking of taking a year off before Christmas because I was playing that bad,” said the 49-year-old.

“But over Christmas I thought I would give myself one more chance, and I have done it, so I am really pleased.

“The reason I lost my card last year was because my mum died in March, and my play just went downhill from there. I have refocused and now I’m really pleased to have done her proud once again.”

Northern Ireland’s Ray Campbell, the final tour card winner of the day, was also awarded a first round bye before easing past Jeffrey Beekhuis in his first game. He then went on to beat Ron Schouten, Jason Marriott, Mark Dewsbury, Ian Walters and Vincent Kamphuis to reach the final four.

The PDC 2016 Qualifying School concludes on Saturday (January 16), with the final four tour cards up for grabs.

Qualifying School Ranking Points will be awarded as follows:
Last 128 defeat: One point
Last 64 defeat: Two point
Last 32 defeat: Three points
Last 16 defeat: Five points
Last eight defeat: Nine points

JAMES RICHARDSON won back his PDC Tour Card on the second day of the 2016 Qualifying School, as Jonathan Worsley and teenagers Ted Evetts and Ryan Meikle secured their places amongst the sport’s elite for the first time.

Rushden’s Richardson will return to the elite 128 Tour Card Holders in 2016 following a year on the Challenge Tour after he won through Thursday’s second day of play in Wigan, where 372 players were in action.

The bricklayer defeated Rhys Hayden, Damian Smith, Ross Smith, Luke Woodhouse, Steve Brown and Holland’s Yordi Meeuwisse as he won back his Tour Card.

Richardson will remain in Wigan during the remainder of Qualifying School to support son Joshua, the teenager who was the Junior Darts Corporation’s 2015 champion and the winner of the Lakeside Youth event last week who is now bidding to follow his father onto the ProTour.

Southam-based 18-year-old Ted Evetts, who has recently qualified as a chef, will move onto the senior circuit for the first time this year following his success on Day Two.

The teenager has played for the last two years on the PDC Unicorn Development Tour but will now step up to compete on the ProTour after defeating John Newland, Swen Gewalt, Richard Baillie, Jamie Ellam, Marko Kantele, Barrie Bates and Darron Brown.

Welsh ace Jonathan Worsley, a 31-year-old from Chepstow, won his Tour Card for the first time as he fought through Day Two.

A former butchery manager, Worsley has competed as a PDPA Associate Member for the past three years and won a spot in the 2014 UK Open, overcame David Wilson, Jack Hill, James Welding, Tony Newell, Robert Marijanovic, Brian Woods and Matthew Dennant to claim his Tour Card.

Suffolk-based barber Ryan Meikle, 19, steps onto the ProTour after only competing for one year on the Development Tour following his success, which included wins over former World Championship finalist Kirk Shepherd and veteran professional Dennis Smith.

The left-hander defeated Robert Thompson, Par Riihonen, Ben Adams, Craig Lewis, Shepherd, Jason Marriott and Smith on the day as he earned a two-year Tour Card to establish himself amongst the sport’s elite stars.

Dennis Smith, Darron Brown and Matthew Dennant were all just one leg away from winning an automatic Tour Card as they lost out 5-4 in the last eight alongside Holland’s Meeuwisse, but the quartet all picked up valuable ranking points.

Recent World Championship qualifier John Michael, former UK Open finalist Barrie Bates, Bristol’s Steve Brown and youngster Aden Kirk were amongst the players to reach the last 16 on the second of four days of play at Qualifying School.

Friday sees players return for Day Three at the Robin Park Tennis Centre, where a further four automatic Tour Cards are on offer.
Qualifying School Ranking Points will be awarded as follows:
Last 128 defeat: One point
Last 64 defeat: Two point
Last 32 defeat: Three points
Last 16 defeat: Five points
Last eight defeat: Nine points

PDC QSchool 2016 Day 1 Results

PDC QSchool

JOHN BOWLES, Andy Parsons, Ricky Williams and Simon Stevenson were the four Tour Card winners on the opening day of the 2016 PDC Qualifying School in Wigan, as Ross Smith hit a nine-dart finish in Wigan.
A field of 371 players took part in the first of four days of action in Qualifying School, as hopefuls from as far afield as Australia, America, Japan and South Africa competed to earn a full-time spot on the PDC ProTour.

Former rugby league player Bowles won back his Tour Card status at the first time of asking, having dropped out of the world’s top 64 at the end of 2015.

The Widnes thrower, 48, had initially won his Tour Card in 2012 and will maintain his status amongst the world’s elite players after defeating Justin Broton, Fabian Herz, Colin Fowler, Harry Robinson, Dick van Dijk and Brian Woods on Wednesday.

Bowles never lost more than three legs in the best of nine leg matches as he won back his Tour Card, and he said: “I played quite decent darts all day, and with a big field like it was it’s very hard, so I’m absolutely made up to get my Tour Card on the first day.

“I was really disappointed to lose my Tour Card, but with the way that the system works it keeps you on your toes and it’s really good. If you don’t win as much money as you did a couple of years ago you’ll drop down the rankings.

“I’ve had four years and everything’s been a learning curve. I’ve got to be more consistent than I have been in the last two years – the next goal now is winning a place in the UK Open in Minehead in March.”

Bristol-based plumber Parsons also won back his Tour Card to retain his status on the PDC ProTour, having competed for the past two years on the circuit.

After edging out Thailand’s Thanawat Gaweenuntawong 5-4 in his opening game, he then overcame Michael Gans, Michael Dawson, Colin Littlecott, Joey Palfreyman, Ross Smith and Mark Barilli – in a deciding leg – to complete a successful day.

“I’m over the moon, really happy,” said Parsons. “I won’t be taking it lightly and I’ll be practising hard and giving it my best.

“I’m a plumber and that’s still my day job, before I go back to the family and practice in the evenings, but it would take a lot of stress off if I can get to a stage where I play darts full-time.

“With the prize money increases which the PDC have introduced, it will really help and I want to kick on from here now. I’ll take it one tournament at a time and I’ll focus on the two European Tour qualifiers this weekend now and then try win a UK Open place.”

Portsmouth’s Williams, 26, secured Tour Card status for the first time in his career through his success on Wednesday, although the decorator has played in spells on the circuit since 2007.

He defeated Lee Evans, Jeffrey Bekema, Peter Martin, Rhys Griffin, Mark Dudbridge, Marvin Wehder and Essex youngster Rhys Hayden – edging their decider 5-4 – to claim his Tour Card.

“I’m very, very proud,” said Williams. “It’s an excellent opportunity for me and I’m really looking forward to the next two years.

“I was playing really well in the middle of last year but I came to Q School with no expectations and won my Tour Card.

“I’ve got a good sponsor and good family and friends supporting me and I think I’m definitely a better player now than I was when I’ve played before. I never give in now where perhaps I showed some immaturity a couple of years ago when I went a few legs down.

“I’ve got more experience and hopefully this is the time where I’ll step up. I know I’m more than capable but I’ve never shown it before.”

He added: “Getting through on the first day means even more because I’ve got a friend’s wedding back in Portsmouth on Saturday and I was gutted when I realised that the date clashed with Q School.

“He’s just come out of hospital and a few weeks ago we didn’t know if he was going to live, but he’s recovered and he urged me to come up to Wigan, win my Tour Card and get back for the wedding – and I’m going to make it to the wedding!”

Plymouth-based Stevenson, 43, will compete on the PDC ProTour for the first time after being the day’s other Tour Card winner – having previously competed as an amateur in the 2014 and 2015 UK Opens and on the second-tier PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour last year.

Stevenson won ties with Krit Middleton, Barrie Bates, Peter Walford, Gary Stone, Ted Evetts, Brett Claydon and Rob Owen – where he survived two missed match darts from the Welshman – to secure his success.

“It’s my best achievement ever,” said Stevenson. “I didn’t expect it to come on the first day but I’m really looking forward to the future now.

“A couple of years ago I had a really good UK Open and got to the last 32, and that set me thinking that I could compete.

“I’ve got County level experience with Devon and I played on the Challenge Tour last year, and I wanted to see what I can do by coming to Q School, so to get a Tour Card on Day One is brilliant.”

There was disappointment, though, for Ross Smith after he enjoyed the thrill of hitting a nine-dart leg during his 5-0 whitewash of Holland’s Ryan De Vreede in the third round, only to lose out to Parsons two games short of a Tour Card.

The 2016 PDC Qualifying School continues on Thursday with the second of four days of play, with a further four automatic Tour Cards on offer, with ranking points also being given to players based on their finishing positions.

Runs to the last eight on Day One saw Woods, Owen, Barilli and Hayden all pick up nine valuable ranking points, giving them a head start in the bid to win a Tour Card following Qualifying School based on the final rankings.

Qualifying School Ranking Points will be awarded as follows:
Last 128 defeat: One point
Last 64 defeat: Two point
Last 32 defeat: Three points
Last 16 defeat: Five points
Last eight defeat: Nine points
